Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Sayyed Ali khamenei said Britain has a history of humiliating nations, destroying cultural and civilization heritage and taking control of their resources.
Addressing Iranian naval commanders on Monday, Ayatollah Khamenei said British imperialists are known to convince nations of their ineptitude in order to dominate their resources.
"During the Ghajar and Pahlavi dynasties the country's officials were helpless in the face of the demands of domineering powers … but the Islamic Revolution gifted Iran dignity," the IR Leader added.
Ayatollah Khamenei added that the sense of self-respect that Iran gained because of the Islamic Revolution resulted in the country "single-handedly standing up to the biggest arrogant [powers] and imperialists and crushing their will."
The Leader of the Islamic Revolution stressed that feeling weak in front of the enemy will prevent nations from progress.
